Scentsy Inc.’s owners gave the company’s 1,058 employees $10 each so they can spread some kindness Friday, International Pay It Forward Day, according to a press release.
This is the seventh year Heidi and Orville Thompson have encouraged their staff to participate. The employees are based in the United States, Europe and Australia.
Scentsy, based in Meridian, is a fragrance and home decor company that lists generosity as one of its three core values.
“Every year, I leave flowers on the doorsteps of the single moms in my neighborhood,” Scentsy employee Brenda Browning said in a press release. “It wasn’t too long ago that I was a single mom myself, and I so appreciate all the kindness and generosity I received from my friends and neighbors.”
Along with the $10, each employee is given a small card that asks the recipient to in turn pass forward an act of kindness.
